WordPress vs HubPages

I recently joined HubPages. September 10th to be exact.

I recently deleted my HubPages. September 21st to be exact.

 

I joined HubPages after doing some research into freelance writing. This didn’t require a Bachelor’s degree. Or travelling. I could write up articles on things I knew about, things that would inform and could help others. Mostly health wise. And then I could apply for certain Ad Programs and gain a small amount of income. Nothing major, but something.

Only, I didn’t realize how stupid of an idea that was until I’d already signed up and started hubbing. There is only one problem with me having a HubPages account.

I have a blog.

There are a few reasons this just doesn’t work for me.

Triquetra Symbolism

When most people think about the triquetra design, they instantly think of the TV show “Charmed”. If not, they at least think about magick, witches, and Wiccans, and spells. But really, the triquetra was created by the Celts a long time ago and is now being used as a symbol by many. More on “Charmed”, magick, and Wiccans in a minute.

Hold your ponies; I can only spew words through my fingers so quickly, you know.

The Celts have a few different knots which resemble the triquetra. They have some intersecting meanings but each has its own purpose; its own base symbolism. For now, I’m strictly giving you information on the triquetra. Not anything that resembles it.

In Latin, triquetra means “three cornered”.

This symbol is also called the Trinity Knot or Celtic Triangle.

Under Pressure

I think I’ve finally snapped. Hallelujah. It took me long enough.

I feel crazy but it’s a good crazy.

Don’t worry, I haven’t decided to change my name, dye my hair a different color and go around skewering people alive like Vlad Tepes. Although there are a few people to whom I’d love to cause pain like the pain they’ve caused me and the ones I love.

But that wouldn’t be right and I know it. I’ll let karma deal with them.

Define the Romance Genre

Alrighty, well as you can see I’m going out of order with the defining of the genres posts. I promise, you will survive (hey! hey!).
I defined the genres as thusly (here):

1. Fantasy
2. Horror
3. Mystery/Crime
4. Romance
5. Science Fiction
6. Thriller/Suspense/Adventure

But I’m not going in order. That’ just me though; sporadic. Although, I never said I’d go in order, so… In fear of kicking a dead horse, let’s move on.
I loathe that phrase, by the way: kicking a dead horse.
Here is my definition of romance and then all of its subgenres (and its subgenres’ subgenres)…

Be Like Nike and Just Do It

Goals, plans, ideas, creativity, persistence, motivation, determination, ingenuity, resources, dreams, and intent are all useless if you don’t actually start doing what you want to be doing.

If you don’t do anything…. you’re going nowhere.

 

Don’t let anything hold you back. Not doubt (self or otherwise), procrastination, negative comments, fear of failure, fear of making mistakes, actually making mistakes, etc.

Unless aliens are invading, do it – whatever your ‘it’ happens to be (as long as you’re not involving clowns, I’m good). Even then you could be keeping video documentary and exposing the nefarious plans of the talking squirrels that let the aliens in on how to take us down.

 

Talking squirrels are going to sell us out. It’s true.

Coyote the Trickster

Coyote is the 4th and last of my trickster series.  He is normally compared to both Loki and Prometheus, whenever mentioned.

The Coyote is the Trickster I was first introduced to and I have to admit that even though I love the Kitsune and Loki, I play favorites with Coyote because I’m Native.

 

SPECIES

He is anthropomorphic. A human. A coyote. Able to be both at the same time. Able to be only one at a time. Whichever he chooses. He is also able to take the shape of a human with a coyote’s head, but I find that theory creepy, strange, and kind of dorky/silly. So I’m going to continue on ignoring it and pretend I didn’t say it.

Coyote is one of the First People, one of the beings who existed before the human race.

There is not a race of coyote tricksters as there are with the Kitsune, for example. There is only one Coyote, as he is an immortal. And even though he may die in one tale, legend, or myth, he will always and forever return to life.
